‘ICC handling of DRS a joke’, says Virtual Eye technology creator

‘ICC handling of DRS a joke’, says Virtual Eye technology creatorSydney, Nov. 10 : The man in charge of the controversial Decision Review System (DRS), Ian Taylor has claimed that the handling of the DRS by the International Cricket Council (ICC) was a "joke" and also fears that players' careers could be harmed by its incorrect use.

Taylor, chief executive of Animation Research Ltd, believes that India, the only country that rejects the DRS, was more likely to embrace it if the third umpire had the final say on all decisions made with technology.

"It's meant to only find those mistakes that are so wrong everybody saw them. There are times when the technology can get it wrong and at the moment there are more chances of that if they (ICC) don't have protocols," News. com. au quoted Taylor, as saying.

"If it's just for TV, which was originally the case, it doesn't matter. Nobody's career is going to be harmed by a mistake," he added.

Taylor made his comments after Australia struggled with its reviews on the opening day of the Gabba Test against South Africa yesterday.

The Aussie team face problems after making a bad call for a caught behind off Graeme Smith down the leg side, had a howler from umpire Billy Bowden overturned to claim Smith lbw for 10, and lost the second and last review with a close lbw call on Alviro Petersen. (ANI)
